The Stage Performer's Gibson!Gibson designed the stunning 2009 Super Dove acoustic-electric guitar with the performer in mind. Not only does the 2009 Super Dove give you killer plugged-in performance, but its single-cutaway Super Jumbo body style actually features a shallower depth (3") than does a standard Super Jumbo. A solid Sitka spruce top and solid flamed maple back and sides give the 2009 Super Dove rich tone and impressive acoustic projection. This guitar's impressive appointments include several "doves in flight" inlays, a hand-carved ebony bridge and a hand-engraved pickguard.
Gibson 2009 Super Dove Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Stage-ready features
- Premium tonewoods, elegant appointments
- Classic Gibson craftsmanship
The 2009 Super Dove sounds sweet acoustically, but if you dig to plug in, you'll really appreciate its stage-friendly features. Gibson incorporated a new thin-line body depth into the 2009 Super Dove's Super Jumbo body shape to give you more comfy playing experience and to minimize feedback. One cutaway adds full access to the fretboard, while built-in Fishman Aura Pro electronics provide an astoundingly natural amplfied sound.
Premium tonewoods, elegant appointments
This acoustic-electric sounds incredible unplugged, too, thanks in no small part to its premium tonewoods. The 2009 Super Dove has a solid Sitka spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, a comfy mahogany neck, and a stunning ebony fretboard. The appointments are premium, as well: MOP "Doves in Flight" bird inlays adorn the fretboard, hand-carved ebony bridge, and hand-engraved pickguard.
Classic Gibson craftsmanship
Gibson's reputation as a fine guitar builder dates back to the 1800s. Handcrafted since day one by some of the most skilled luthiers around, Gibson acoustic guitars have inspired countless players around the world. When you pick up a Gibson acoustic, you know you're getting the coolest tonewoods, quality hardware, and incredible attention to detail - these instruments are made to sound amazing and stand the test of time. After moving from Kalamazoo, MI, to Nashville, TN (where Gibson electric guitars continue to be made), Gibson finally settled their acoustic operation in Bozeman, MT, where they continue making some of the coolest guitars on the planet by hand.
